. and right now we've got a government so big and so expensive it's sapping the drive out of our people and keeping our economy from running at full capacity. the solution to this crisis is not complicated. if you're spending more money than you're taking in, you need to spend less of it. >> it is so elementary and so simple for the republicans, isn't it? boehner's two-step approach is nothing but a joke. for republicans, it all starts and ends with defeating president obama and seeing him fail. just take a look at the title of boehner's plan, "two-step approach to hold president obama accountable"? president obama accountable? did he inherit this? hold it there for just a moment. boehner isn't trying to solve the debt crisis. this is all about making president obama fail. let's dive into boehner's two-step plan. here's number one. cuts that exceed the debt hike. number two, caps to control future spending. now, those two steps seem pretty reasonable. the problem? boehner's two-step plan, you see, really has three more steps to it. number three, a balanced budget amendment. now, let's t
